History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

In Style

A collection of beautiful fashion photography by talented LIFE photographer Nina Leen. Many of them are undated, but by the styles and dated photos I would say they are all pretty solidly 40s-50s. 

This post is dedicated to my dear friend Bronwyn. :)
